Allusions and References

Even though Star Trek was two years off, could this episode of Burke's Law have been foreshadowing it?

In one scene, Hoagy Carmichael's character inadvertently says 'Captain Kirk' instead of 'Captain Burke', and on top of that, Nanette Fabray plays Mrs. TRIBBLE!

Memorable Moments


"Never call the Captain unless it's murder...Burke's Law!"--a testy Amos says this to Tim shortly before seeing something that tells him this wasn't a 'bathtub accident'.
